yes and no...
Beijing -- yes.

Other cities not that much -- Shenzhen is something this part of the world will never see (21 year old city with 15+ M people), Guangzhou, Nanjin, Hangzhou... Even Shanghai is more than a facade. Beijing is pretty much as described, but for a good reason. Chinese are going to blow everyone away with the Olympics stuff, what will happen after that, we'll see.

Again, 2-week vacation trip to China will leave some (right or wrong impression). I go there every month and see both the "facade" things and real development and improvement...
